Japanese experts from National Research Institute for Cultural Properties (Tokyo) gave lectures on preservation of ancient cultural buildings at the Archaeology and National Museum Department (Mandalay) on Friday.
The training course was conducted from 13 to 23 January for the third time. The experts emphasized preservation of wooden monasteries in Mandalay city applying modern technology.
Lecturer Mr Masahiko Tomoda said, “It is very difficult to maintain the ancient cultural buildings because the ancient Myanmar handicrafts decorated at the buildings are very fine. That is why, it is necessary to place emphasis on maintenance and preservation of the buildings.”
A trainee said, “Thanks to the training course, I know Myanmar’s handicrafts are the most significant and Myanmar architects are excellent. Depending on the fund and duration in maintenance of the buildings, we could not give priority to ancient value.”
It was attended by engineers in Archaeology and National Museum Department (Mandalay) and faculty members of Mandalay Technological University.–Aung Ye Thwin
